Otocec must have one of the most romantic and stunning settings in Europe- on a small island in the middle of a river accessible only by a rickety wooden bridge, surrounded by water, swans and trees. I loved the rustic exterior which has not been over-renovated, the beautiful large courtyard (perfect for lounging in the afternoon or a beautiful dinner... More

The restaurant and hotel is in the castle few hunderd years old. Atmosvera is great and you can feel like a king while you eat degustation menu. We have Kolos red vino from Edi Simcic recomended by Matijaz. This is not cheap dinner, but it is something to remember for the rest of our life.

a bit sterile food, but still worth a visit. They have not changed the menu for many years, however there is no negative surprise either. the neighbourhood is fantastic for short or long walks and the entire surrounding including the restaurant is clean neat and well preserved. it is definitely better for your eyes then what you will experience in...

Liked the cofee quality and the service. We felt the castle spirit. A little more cleanliness would be appreciated (dirty walls by shoes).
